A little gem of classic jazz and irony,
This review is from: Thoroughly Modern Millie: Original Broadway Cast Recording (Audio CD)
I had the good luck to see "Thoroughly Modern Millie" on Broadway a couple of months ago, and I was looking forward to the Original Boadway Cast recording to come out on CD.
The musical is the remake of a movie, but it includes original music and songs. As the story is set in the 1920s, jazz and ragtime are the leading moods of this musical. All the new songs are delightful (especially "Only in New York"), and the new versions are extremely well delivered ("Jimmy" is the best example). Also, what I really liked about this musical, are the ironic tones, as the couple of Chinese good-hearted crooks, and the love story between Miss Dorothy and Mr Graydon. "Ah! Sweet Mystery of Life" is the best example!
